View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
A few random observations on my mind.
My craving for and response to my children's physical affection is akin to what I imagine a drug addict's response to be. Not to say that they don't make me crazy a good half of the time, but nothing is better than their sweet little pats and nuzzles. NOTHING.
I had white pasta the other night and not only did it not taste good, it left me feeling bloated and gross. If permanent, this would be a god-send because then my 'bad' carb addictions might be limited to chex mix, bread, and the occasional fried potato. This is exciting. Even bread for me now is almost always non-white, which is good.
I've been wonderfully full this week due to the increased cals - however, in retrospect, I think I should have upped them gradually rather than all at once. I'm expected a spike on the scale tomorrow and will need to mentally prepare for that.
I got a Tom Venuto book from Amazon that I'm looking forward to reading.
Two weeks 'til Tulum - 2W2T!! I am so white I will scare the beejesus out of all living things there. I will probably have to convince people I'm actually alive and not a corpse. I glow in the dark, I'm so white.
I caught a inadvertent glimpse of myself in a full mirror before a shower the other night (I generally try to avoid this) and re-realized that I would've been considered seriously HOT in the 1700's judging by the nekkid lady paintings from that general era. Granted, I wouldn't have been able to vote or own property in my own name or have survived child birth or have kept my teeth past 30, so one could argue that there are trade-offs.
